Candace Owens: CDC Document Discusses Putting High Risk People Into Camps

Candice Owes caused quite a stir in the mainstream media with a recent Tweet to her 2.8 million Twitter followers that claims the CDC wrote a paper discussing putting certain people in camps during the pandemic.

“Holy sh!t. The CDC actually put together a document to discuss putting high risk people into camps to “shield” low risk people from them. No— this is not a joke, and yes, every single person who has made a reference to 1930’s Germany is vindicated,” the Tweet reads.

CNN responded:

Facts First: This is utter nonsense. The CDC guidance — from July of last year — addresses humanitarian settings such as refugee camps and how to help protect high-risk individuals from Covid-19 in those camps.

“This document presents considerations from the perspective of the (CDC),” the introduction reads, “for implementing the shielding approach in humanitarian settings as outlined in guidance documents focused on camps, displaced populations and low-resource settings.”

One of the considerations proposed by the CDC is limiting the interaction of people who might be more negatively affected by the virus — like older people — with others. The CDC notes that other considerations, like how separating families might harm mental health, should be considered before implementing such a strategy.

Owens’ mischaracterization of the document and comparing, by implication, the CDC to the Nazi party is complete kookiness.
